As Tench says, if you shoot your Huntsman whilst you complete the build, you can afford to take your time and perfect it.
If you can't do the machining work yourself and can't stretch the budget to get it done, then AAs400's and ProTargets will allow you to swap cylinder and barrel lengths and stocks with various other models - so you're creating a more suitable, 'custom rifle' from readily available, off the shelf parts.
